About Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia

20 years since the first Brigandine game launched on the original PlayStation®, Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia is a classic returning to the PlayStation as a new turn-based strategy game created for modern gaming platforms and set in a familiar fantasy world primed for players to conquer.
